Emma Hastings was a splendid theater sister, and the devastatingly handsome Dutch surgeon Justin Teylingen was certainly aware of her talents. During his visit to her hospital, Justin had gained the greatest respect and admiration for Emma, but that wasn't quite the same as feeling love -- and Emma knew it was love that she wanted from Justin. But why would he see her as anything more than an efficient colleague when far prettier girls were his for the asking ?
Emma Hastings is on vacation in Holland with her mother when she hits a car driven by Dutch Surgeon Justin Teylingen. Not exactly a good start to a relationship and she is not thrilled to learn that he will be performing surgery at the hospital where she works as a nurse. Emma thinks Justin is in love with his cousin, little does she realize that he is in love with her and is willing to wait until she falls in love with him. This is another wonderful romance from Betty Neels. The plot is one of her most popular - a handsome and rich Dutch doctor falls in love with a plain English nurse who is excellent at her job and comes from a poor but loving family. She also throws in the plot device of having the heroine in danger and the doctor must save her (showing the reader he loves her although the heroine isn't aware of it yet). There is nothing new here, but that's what is so great about her books - you know exactly what you are getting when you read them and they are a great pick me up when you need it. "Wish With the Candles" is another winner from Betty Neels.read more
